Living through a pandemic

DAILY AND WEEKLY STATISTICS HERE
▫️ INCIDENCE RATES
As of yesterday evening, there were no departements in France with an Incidence Rate larger than 400, this means that based on this information only, the announced deconfinement steps can go ahead in all regions.
In our own Aude departement, the incidence rate is also receeding and stands at 185,45
▫️ BRITS IN FRANCE
I mentionned yesterday a TV program following the lives of a few British people living in Occitanie. I have found the link on France TV where you can catch up with it.
The program is called
“For the British who live in Occitania, the Brexit is a bad surprise. Everything risks becoming more complicated: travelling between France and England, getting medical treatment, working, trading, studying… The Brexit will change the rules of the game for the 27,000 English people living in Occitania.
With humour, energy and sensitivity, whether they are winegrowers or students, retired, musicians or bistro owners, they explain their choice of a life made in France, in the Hérault or in the Gers, and their desire to remain European. What are they all looking for in Occitania?”
▫️ PLACE CARNOT – CARCASSONNE
The official reopening is scheduled for May 8th just in time for the re-opening of the terrasses of the bars and bistrots on May 19th. The 10 days are needed to set up all the tables and chairs within the new layouts. Question: do the bars and restaurants also have new furniture?
▫️ MUSIC OF 1969
Another number 1 in France at that time.
